Dr. Strangelove’s Playground

Published: 2019

This third collection of memoirs begins in the 1940s with an epic Los Angeles snowstorm and concludes with the story of a gardening project unique to the backyards of Oregon. In between stories of a childhood in Southern California and retirement in Oregon, the author describes life with students, friends, and relatives, both famous and obscure.
